Wood, Brick, or Natural Stone
There are many different stamps and patterns, there are three main stamps that stand out above the rest. Wood, brick, and natural stone are arguably the most popular patterns when it comes to stamped concrete. In combination with stain, these stamps will look identical to their more costly counterparts. Wood, brick, and natural stone can be excellent materials, but they require a high cost to maintain or a high cost to install.
The Most Popular Patterns For Your Driveway
Stamped concrete to look like hardwood is a very unique style and would be very unique as a driveway material. Guaranteed to turn heads, this stamp has become trending among stamped concrete designs. A hardwood-like driveway would increase the curb appeal of your home with its beauty but increase the property value as well.
Brick is a beautiful material that can come in many beautiful shades, but it can be costly to have installed. Not only that, but it also takes time literally laying your driveway brick by brick. Stamped concrete takes the hard work out of bricklaying and gives you the same great look for your driveway at a lower cost!

Brick/Pavers Vs. Stamped Concrete
- These pavers cost anywhere from $10-$20 per square foot, which will add up quickly for a driveway.
- Pavers have a lot of maintenance that is more complex than that of stamped concrete.
- Pavers can sink over time. The worst part is they don’t have to sink in a line or groups but often in random spots of the driveway.
- Individual pavers can take a long time to install and may have to be cut and maneuvered to fit the shape of your driveway.
- Stamped Concrete typically runs around $6-$10 per square foot, that’s half of what pavers cost.
- Maintenance is simple, only requiring a good sweep and the occasional spray off. Reseal once a year.
- Installation is quick and easy! No individual pavers to worry about just one large slab, and you’re done!
- Unlimited options for both colors and textures and can mimic high-end materials at a fraction of the cost.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Until I Can Drive On My Stamped Concrete Driveway?
Stamped concrete driveways are a quick and easy installation process that gives you a beautiful new driveway. Once the driveway is poured and stamped, it’ll need time to cure. It can take anywhere from three to seven days for it to cure. For maximum cure time, we recommend waiting the full seven days before driving on the stamped concrete.
What is the process of installing stamped concrete?
First, the concrete is poured into forms in the shape you want your driveway to be. If the color is desired, it is added to the mixture or after the mixture is poured, depending on the final look you wish to achieve. A release agent is applied to ease the removal of the texturing mats. Texturing mats are then laid to create the design until the entire slab is stamped. After this, the concrete will have to dry for 24 hours. Once it is dry, the release agent is rinsed off, and a sealer is applied to help your concrete last for years to come!
